It’s 2020, and Bosses Still Shouldn’t Be Making Employee Birth Control Decisions

On Wednesday, May 6, the Supreme Court heard yet another case debating whether bosses should be able to determine employees’ insurance coverage of birth control. Sound familiar? That’s because we’ve been here before. Little Sisters of the Poor vs. Pennsylvania pits employers who hold a religious or “sincere moral opposition” to contraception against two states […]

Conference Call With Population Connection Members to Discuss Population Growth and Pandemics

Population Connection · John Seager COVID-19 Presentation Note: The audio in John’s presentation scrambles for a bit a couple minutes in (working from home has its tech challenges)—please skip ahead and continue listening!

Planet of the Humans Swings Wildly, Misses Badly

Toward the end of the recently-released, Michael Moore-produced film Planet of the Humans, the narrator blames everyone: “It’s not one thing, but everything we are doing.

We literally owe these health care workers our lives. Many of them are becoming infected themselves, in the process of treating sick patients. Some of them have […]

COVID-19: Pandemics and Population Growth

All any of us are reading about these days is the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The Democratic Primary? Harry and Meghan ditching their royal crowns and moving to Canada? It truly seems as if those previously all-consuming stories have been forgotten and replaced with articles about TP altercations, sports cancellations, and how ineffectively we’ve been washing […]

World Wildlife Day 2020: Sustaining All Life on Earth

  More than a billion animals died in Australia’s bushfires over the past few months. Animals including koalas, kangaroos, and wallabies—cute, furry marsupials that the world adores. The public outpouring of support to rehabilitate the injured animals that survived the fires has been inspiring. Extrapolating on my own experience, the grief that people felt in […]
